When it comes to vintage looks at an affordable pricepoint, it’s really hard to argue against the entirety of the Q Timex lineup. These watches just hit all of the right marks for folks looking for the vintage style, with all the benefits of modern manufacturing. While prior Q’s have been sportier, this latest – the Q Timex 1978 Reissue – goes with more of a dressier (or maybe business casual) look.
I’d say that the Q Timex 1978 Reissue is also a win for folks with small wrists, or just plain prefer a smaller watch. You see, not only does this watch capture the look and vibe of the late 70s with it’s creamy dial and large two-tone indices, it embraces case sizing of the era, and comes in at a tidy 35mm. That might be a touch too small for my tastes, but it’s one worth looking for if you’re on the fence.
On the other hand, if you’re ready to go and know 35mm is your personal sweet spot, then you two can grab your own Q Timex 1978 Reissue for just $169. Then, once you get rolling, you’ll have the watch keeping time for years and years to come – and have easy battery changes with the access port on the back when the time comes.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
